The Greg Siple Award for Young Adult Bicycle Travel

Explore the world by bicycle. Discover the adventure that awaits you. Inspire others. Whether you are new to bicycle travel or looking to build your outdoor leadership skills, The Greg Siple Award helps young adults get in the saddle and out on the road by providing the skills and the gear needed for a lifetime of bicycle travel adventure. In return, recipients of The Greg Siple Award will perform an outreach activity to promote bicycle travel and share it with the world.

The Greg Siple Award, named after Adventure Cycling’s cofounder, is open to young adults ages 18 to 30. (Must be 18–30 years old on March 1, 2018.) In its fifth year, The Greg Siple Award was developed in response to Adventure Cycling members’ desire to inspire more young people to travel by bicycle.

Four Greg Siple Awards (two Intro to Bike Travel awards and two Outdoor Leadership awards) are available in 2018 to support cyclists of varying levels of experience. The 2018 application will open on November 1, 2017, with a deadline of December 31, 2017.
